It’s true: Dubai is a super city. But did you know that it’s home to the world’s favourite superheroes too? We’re sure your Spidey senses are tingling now. Beloved Marvel guardians Spider-Man, The Hulk, Iron Man, Thor and the rest of the Avengers alliance can be found at IMG Worlds of Adventure.
Having reopened last summer following a huge renovation, you’ll now find 22 rides and attractions, 28 food and drink outlets and 25 shops in five themed zones. The park also runs free morning and afternoon shuttle services for all ticket holders from 80 hotels across Dubai.
The 139,000 sq m, indoor, temperature-controlled park has an entire Marvel zone where everything from the pavement to the dizzying Thor’s Thunderspin ride is designed on the comic franchise. While Spidey’s nemesis Doc Ock’s Revenge ride will leave thrill-seekers clinging onto the end of an erratic tentacle for dear life (who could possible save you?).
RIDES FOR THE BIG AND SMALL
For little explorers there’s fun to be had in Cartoon Network land, where 5D cinemas, musicals and costume characters from Ben 10, LazyTown and the Powerpuff Girls cater for all ages. Adrenaline junkies should head to Velociraptor in the Lost Valley to be catapulted at 100kph into gravity-defying inversions, corkscrews and turns in just 2.5 seconds. Or take on the loops, rolls and twists of the Predator. The show continues for big kids in The Haunted Hotel, The Boulevard.
